JusT NOT FeeliNg my Best

JUsT not Feeling My BesT

It’s one of THOSE days. Foot drop is really P…..g me off. Balance has taken an unexpected vacation. And to top it off, I get to go to every lady’s favorite doctor visit tomorrow morn.

Yep. It’s mammo time for Lisa. Yeehaw!

Look at that technician smiling like this is the most fun ev-er. Or is she laughing ‘cause that’s not her mammary being pancaked at early o'clock in the morning?

So, with March going out like a lion tonight (71 degrees yesterday, snow forecast tomorrow), this is my April Fools Day gift.

Not funny.

But, seriously, getting a mammogram is probably one of the most important medical tests.

Don’t forget to schedule yours. Because of COVID, mine has been re-scheduled twice. If you have had one of the vaccines, this article may interest you. I had my second vaccine in mid-February, so I think I’m safe to proceed.

Doctors urge women to delay mammogram until 4–6 weeks after COVID-19 vaccine

Today might be the last day of MS Awareness Month, but it’s not the last day of my life with the MonSter. I’m gonna keep on keeping on.

Don’t forget the ABCs for Good Mental and Emotional Health Dr. Adam Kaplin has taught us:

  1. ASK for assistance when you need it.
  2. Remember to take BREAKS.

3. COMMUNICATE your needs and thoughts.

4. DON’T do things that make your symptoms worse.

5. EXERCISE!

6. FIND your purpose in life.

7. Be GRATEFUL.

8. Have FUN!

9. IDENTIFY quick resources for wellness.

Abiding by this advice won't eliminate the MonSter, but it should weaken its power.

Lisa, Lady With the Cane

BORED? ARE YOU A COUCH POTATO?

                                                                 Bored? Are you a couch potato? If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done. As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).  The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

Taopatch = scam?

So, as I sit fuming about not receiving my TaoPatch order within the promised time, this article popped up on my computer screen. I fear I may have been swindled. Oh, well, won't be the first time.                                                        MS patient shines a light on the harms of misleading media messages https://www.healthnewsreview.org/2018/05/ms-patient-ed-tobias/ https://www.amazon.com/Have-Whats-Your-Super-Power/dp/1882658442/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=i+have+ms.+what%27s+your+superpower&qid=1556457191&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull
